Oily coffee beans

So we have a Gaggia Brera superautomatic espresso maker. It makes great espresso but refuses to feed oily coffee beans. Here's a list of those that aren't and those that are too oily.

Not too oily:
In between
  • Verena Street Shot Tower Espresso
Too oily:
  • Dazbog White Nights Espresso
  • Kicking Horse Cliff Hanger Espresso
  • Kicking Horse Three Sisters
It'd be nice if the roasters would come up with a method to express this. In general of course, we can look for light or medium roast, but there is little consistency between the light/medium/dark roast oiliness.
